Netflix recently added Don Hertzfeldt's animated short, "World of Tommorrow (2015)"

It is only 17 min long, but very powerful. A young girl is visited by a clone of herself from her future.
Highly recommend. It was nominated for an Oscar and won the Short Film Grand Jury Prize at Sundance last year.

PS, Netflix also has his longer work, "It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012)" about dealing with a brain disorder. Also highly recommend.

If you try the Ben & Jerry's Bernie Sanders ice cream flavor and don't like it, his supporters will

accuse you of being a corporate tool." - Frank Conniff

Tom the Dancing Bugs Presents: Toddler Menace!

"If anybody thought 2016 wasn't going to be as stupid as 2015, those Oregon armed militia dipshits

put an end to that notion quickly enough." - Frank Conniff


Law Enforcement not confronting armed #Oregon militia because they're busy patrolling Toys R Us stores for black kids buying water pistols.


Trump's first campaign ad is so visually powerful he's advising its intended audience to remove their white hoods when they watch it.


"I'd like to say that Donald Trump is the most outrageous and unqualified person ever to run for

President but really that's not fair to Ted Cruz." - Martin O'Malley, January 6, MSNBC, The Last Word

(Thanks, Elleng)

ROFL: Walt Handelsman on the Press and Donald Trump

"With over 7,000 signatures, I'll officially be on the ballot in VA. Thank you to all the volunteers

- O'Malley from his twitter feed.

Thanks Raine and everyone else.

"Trump's statement was so outrageous and offensive that his polls numbers went up 20 points. I wish

that was a joke. Some bad news for Donald Trump though, Senator Ted Cruz has jumped ahead of him in the latest Iowa poll. The poll was called, Who is Crazier? They're neck and neck. It's not who you want to be President any more, it's who is f'ing crazier."
- Conan O'Brien

Volkswagen: We're Sorry We Got Caught

As the climate change conference opened in Paris, ads appeared around the city, many from sponsors of the conference — or were they? The ads looked genuine, but the messages were a bitingly satirical.

Our insane approach to guns and the people who use them to slaughter us

We’ve had the guy with the shock orange hair. The hermit with the scraggly beard. The gamer living with mom. The misogynist virgin. The disgruntled office worker. The Korean American college kid. The African American veteran.

Until Wednesday’s rampage at a holiday party in San Bernardino, Calif., the only thing we hadn’t had was a woman picking up guns and slaughtering innocent people. But now police tell us we have a Muslim couple with a 6-month-old baby — Syed Rizwan Farook and his Pakistani-born wife, Tashfeen Malik — to add to the ranks of mass shooters and our country’s endless, exhausting gallery of gore.

With each of these rampage shootings — we’ve had more of them this year than we’ve had days — we try to pinpoint what triggered the violence. It’s the mental health system. It’s video games. It’s the recession. It’s religious fanaticism. It’s racial hatred.

Yes, these are all contributing factors. But the real common thread among these shooters is obvious: their access to guns.
